If you want to go to Rio don't go to this hostel. The owner was so rude, the place is so heavy, with a lot of old crap, there was a lot of cockroach and fleas. Its not really a fun place, and its in a dangerous area too, be careful if take a shower -- there are open wires and electrical cables that spark. i wouldnt recommend this place and wouldnt stay here again. I had the worst experience of my entire life. Look for other hostels, but don't get that one.
